Le’Veon Bell to Kansas City: Fantasy Impact

Le’Veon Bell to the Chiefs: Fantasy Impact

by Bob Miller

The wait is over. Le’Veon Bell has signed a 1 year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs. Lev Bell owners are rejoicing, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire owners are freaking out. This is overreaction. 

CEH owners.. chill out. Everything is going to be okay. 

Edwards-Helaire is still the RB1 in the KC offense and will be for the rest of the season. His touches are going to take a hit, but not as bad as most think. CEH is averaging 19.6 touches a game. 20 touches a game in that offense is gold.

Enter Le’Veon Bell. 

The addition of Lev Bell all but kills Darrell Williams and Darwin Thompson’s touches. I believe Bell will be used mostly as a 3rd down back. He will give Edwards-Helaire a breather here and there as well, but Bell will not take over the lead RB role. He doesn’t have the burst that CEH has, and Kansas City throws the ball a lot. 

I expect Clyde Edwards-Helaire to see around 14-15 touches per game with Le’Veon Bell seeing between 8-10 touches moving forward.


I strongly recommend selling Le’Veon Bell right now. I also suggest finding a CEH owner that is panicking, and taking advantage (especially in dynasty). 


I project Le’Veon Bell to be an above average flex play in PPR. 

Clyde Edwards-Helaire should be a solid RB2 in PPR for the remainder of this season.
